I’m taking a little study break to fill you in on the awesome weekend I had! 29 of the Delta Psi Brothers of Kappa Psi made the trek to Brookings, SD for Spring Conclave. Me and 6 of my classmates rented a van and drove down together. We made a few stops along the way — Chipotle in the Twin Cities (my friend Steve had never had it before!) AND we stopped in Olivia, MN at one of the two pharmacies with a functioning soda fountain remaining in the state! It was such an awesome drive with incredible people.
Me, Steve, Sara, Beth, and John, kickin’ it in the mini!
The meeting itself was super fun as well! We started Friday evening by going out to dinner as a chapter and then went to the social event at our hotel where we shook it on the dance floor until the wee hours of the morning. The Saturday business meeting went from the morning to midday, where we participated in breakout groups and heard updates from the province and international officers, and committee heads that were in attendance.
After the meeting, small groups of brothers went out for lunch or caught up on sleep lost from the night before 🙂 After lunch, a group of us hit the links at the hotel’s mini golf course (I got a hole-in-one!). In the afternoon, most of our chapter hung out at the hotel pool/hot tub and relaxed. Later, we all went to the formal dinner and finished off the night with another social with even more dancing!

On the way home Sunday, we stopped at our friend MK’s house (graduated from the Duluth campus in 2011) and he, his younger brother, and his dad made us an AWESOME brunch! It was wonderful to see him again, meet part of his family, and get fueled up for the ride back to Duluth.
Conclave was so amazing, as always, and I’m very glad I was able to go. Being in Kappa Psi is one of my favorite parts of pharmacy school and I am so grateful for all of the friendships I have made and opportunities I’ve had because of it! I look forward to continuing to be active in Kappa Psi after graduation and I would strongly encourage anyone who’s attending pharmacy school to join your campus’ chapter!
Until next time,
